Why we chose this song

Gene chose this song because he frequently sang it to his wife Irene. He first heard this song when Mario Lanza sang it in the movie The Great Caruso.

Song Lyrics

Because, you come to me
With naught save love
And hold my hand and lift mine eyes above
A wider world of hope and joy I see
Because you come to me

Because you speak to me in accent sweet
I find the roses waking 'round my feet
And I am led through tears and joy to thee
Because you speak to me

Because God made thee mine
I'll cherish thee
Through light and darkness through all time to be
And pray His love may make our love divine
Because God made thee mine
